Heungkuk Life Insurance comes together after the anger of ‘Volleyball Empress’ Yeon-kyung Kim “Isn’t expressing emotions a bad thing?”

Kim Yeon-kyung is celebrating with Yelena after scoring a goal in the Dodram 2023-24 V League Women's Division match against Jeong Kwan-jang held at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on the 24th.

‘Volleyball Queen’ Kim Yeon-kyung (35) expressed her anger by slamming the ball on the floor after a failed attack. Afterwards, the players showed a change in concentration, and Heungkuk Life Insurance overcame the turning point and broke the losing streak.

Although Kim Yeon-kyung herself said it was not her intention, this behavior of her team's mental leader had a significant impact on the performance of other players.

Kim Yeon-kyung exploded with 22 points, the most in her team, in the Dodram 2023-24 V League Women's Division match against Jeong Kwan-jang held at the Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on the 24th, winning 3-1 (25-17 25-20 13-25 25-21) led to victory

This game was very important for Heungkuk Life Insurance, which had suffered 3 losses in the last 4 games and its first consecutive loss of the season. This was an opportunity to fight for the lead again with Hyundai Engineering & Construction, and if they lost, they would have to catch up with third place GS Caltex.

The players showed strong concentration from the beginning. They persistently kept the ball alive with the so-called ‘one step further’ defense.

All players, regardless of position, gave their best, including libero Do Soo-bin and Kim Yeon-kyung, who is a good defender, as well as setter Lee Won-jeong and middle blocker Kim Su-ji, Asia Quarter player Reina Tokoku, and Jelena Mrazenovic, who was in an abusive position.

Jeonggwanjang seemed overwhelmed by this momentum, and Heungkuk Life Insurance easily won the first and second sets.

However, in the 3rd set, Heungkuk Life Insurance was helplessly lost to Jeong Kwan-jang, who changed the formation. If they lost even the 4th set, the game would be at square one again.

At this moment, Kim Yeon-kyung came forward. He aggressively attacked from the beginning of the set and marked the end of a long rally. She made another difficult attack at 9-8, cutting the lead to 2 points.

In the ensuing situation, after a long rally, Kim Yeon-kyung had another opportunity, but this time, she was blocked by Megawatti Puttywi (registered name: Mega). Kim Yeon-kyung, who lowered her head, caught the ball and hit it hard with her hand. The ball bounced far away.

However, Kim Yeon-kyung's 'anger' was meant to strengthen herself. He then scored two points in a row, and Heungkuk Life Insurance, which gained momentum, ran away to 14-9 with Kim Su-ji's attack after defense, effectively splitting the game.

The winner was decided by Kim Yeon-kyung's 'anger' and 'awakening'.

Kim Yeon-kyung, whom we met after the game, said, “Actually, in Korea, expressing one’s emotions is not viewed very favorably, but I think it is okay to express anger as long as a card is not drawn. “I stay true to my emotions and play with more passion,” he said.

He added, “It’s a problem if you continue to feel angry, but it’s okay if you quickly regain your composure.” He added, “I think that by doing that, other players can also focus more.”
